Although it doesnt say, I'm getting the feeling that this film about poverty was shot and focuses on the Southern US (well, the accents give it away!) Very striking exploration of poverty in the 1960's. What I liked about this is that the film talks to the subjects themselves, which provides some real insight into this. (I especially liked the woman who was peeling potatoes while she was talking lol). Some really nice well laid out footage here.
